Have you had a chance to reflect on how your intersectional identities such as gender, race, ethnicity, and immigration status have impacted your lived experiences in the field?
How have your intersectional identities shaped your perceptions of influential leaders in creating and implementing an inclusive civil engineering culture?
Hi, my name is Rapunzel Amador-Lewis, P.E., M.ASCE, and I am a full-time practicing Civil Engineer in the building trades industry. I am also a doctoral candidate in the Rossier School of Education at the University of Southern California, conducting a research study as part of my dissertation. I am examining the impact of intersectional identities (i.e., gender, race/ethnicity, generational immigration status) on practicing engineers' perceptions of barriers, strategies, and leadership influences in implementing an inclusive engineering culture. This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
You (or someone you know) are cordially invited to participate in the study.
If you agree, you are invited to:
- Complete an anonymous online survey of questions anticipated to take about 10 minutes to complete.
- Participate in a follow-up interview using the Zoom conferencing tool. The interview is voluntary and is anticipated to last approximately 45 to 60 minutes. You may choose to skip any questions that you do not want to answer; if you prefer the interview not be recorded, I will take handwritten notes instead.
Participation in this study is entirely voluntary. Your identity as a participant will remain confidential at all times during and after the study.
If you would like to participate in the survey, please begin the survey via the link below.
Suppose you would like to participate in the follow-up interview. In that case, there is an opportunity to provide your contact information at the end of the survey. Or, please feel free to email or call me at the contact information below.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 209.300.3358
